‘Experience Louisiana’ Festival is Oct 20
We have over 400 festivals each year in Louisiana. There is truly something for everyone who wants to enjoy our food, music, art, and people. We love that we have so many festivals to choose from!
The Experience Louisiana Festival will once again be held on Saturday, October 20 on the grounds of LSU-E in Eunice. Most activities will take place at the Acadian Center, and the festival runs from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. Celebrating music, food, folklife, film, arts, crafts and culture, the festivities are sponsored by the Eunice Rotary Club , and include a car show, local vendors, food, demonstrations, and of course, live music.
